Hello,

 

wonderd if somebody could suggest a free and obviously virus free software to capture the pictures or text

on your screen, like e.g. MW Snap ( http://download.cnet...4-10524229.html)?

 

Many thanks, Sven

Hi SvenT :)

Personally, I would suggest ShareX. It started as a project on Google Code, and became independant with its own website and all. Have too many features to list, also includes the Greenshot Picture Editor have a capture (if you want to enable it). You can upload the screenshot anywhere you want after, record videos, .gif, etc. The possibilities are endless, check it out!

No problem Sven :) And here's a link on how to use the built-in Snipping Tool in Windows, if you wanted to see what it was:

Not sure exactly what you're needing it for, but just to list 2 more free tools as options you can use Problem Steps Recorder (Start > type "psr") which is built into Windows, or if you're trying to record video/stream, there's a program called OBS which you can find HERE
